Can giving multiple births through a woman's life cause her bladder to weaken and for her to lose control?

I took my birth control pill two hours late. I take it at the same time every day. Should I use a backup method?

Should be ok: Two hours late isn't significant. I.e. You didn't miss a day right? When you ask about 'backup' - it's important to realize that no contraception; not even birth control pills are 100% effective (pretty close though). Also oral contraception doesn't protect against sexually transmitted illnesses, so condoms may be something you want to consider for both pregnancy and STI prevention ...Read more

Hello, I can't remember to take my birth control pills usually and I did not like the nexaplanon, are there any other birth control methods avalible?

Hello, I can't remember to take my birth control pills usually and I did not like the nexaplanon, are there any other birth control methods avalible?

Remembering BC Pills: I tell my patients to leave their BC pills right next to their toothbrush as a reminder each day. Now if you don't brush every day (yuck!) or travel a lot, that will not help. For patients who tolerate BC pills but cannot remember to take them every day, the Nuvaring is a good compromise. You only have to remember to insert the ring once a month, and fewer side effects than Nex. or Depo shot. ...Read more
